Oh, there are many sources of 'joy' in this life, but there is only ONE that is eternal. It comes from God, and it is so needed in the days that are!
"How can assembled letters in
a line with verse or rhyme
contain the joy that You provide
to us at any time?!
Your joy, oh Lord, transcends all
situations in this life--
it overwhelms in tragedy,
and it trumps every strife!
Joy unspeakable, full of glory,
know we as we live
and go about the blest 'routine'
to each of us You give!
And so beyond 'routine' be life
with You inside the heart!
As perfect is the blest provision
You constantly impart!
Maybe words and verses has
this man for to recite,
but may they communicate Your joy
unto a seeking heart!
Too many see I every day
that need the joy You give!
So is the calling you've given me
that others may so live!"
Know such joy in your own life, in your own heart, for all time! His Name is Jesus Christ, His joy is not to be compared with anything, and it is yours for the asking!
